Happy Christmas

Well its that time of year where a lot of people celebrate Christmas and New Year. I for one will be spending time with my family over the festive period, mainly consisting of eating a lot and consuming alcohol. Along with actually being able to spend time with the Mrs.

I don't actually spend that much time with the Mrs due to my shift pattern and the fact she works "Normal" hours. Usually i am sleeping while she is here or i will be working or she will be working. So this will make a nice change.

I will be socialising with the family down the pub having a few drinks.

Coming home and relaxing.

That is my Christmas but for many family's their Christmas will be different, there Xmas will consist of drinking to excess throughout the day, having a "row" with someone usually the other half and calling the police to sort it out as we are there to mend broken relationships, calm down drunks and make peace among the chavs on the estates.

Now they will be sadly mistaken luckily i will not be working over xmas this year but the officers that are will be taking quite a harsh stance with the view of "locking them up" if they cause grief over xmas. This is never a better time to have an impact on those that wind us up all year long.

Ever wandered why no warrants get executed in the run up to Christmas?? Well the reason is we do it over the bank holidays keep you in custody until the next available court date ie Wednesday!

All that grief we get over the year attending calls to chav households, getting hit, abused and shouted at. Now its payback time!

You see, the Police generally are a good bunch, we do our jobs and enjoy it. We lock up those that need locking up and give "suitable advice" to those that don't need locking up.

But our charity runs out at the end of the year. Every time you tell us how to do our jobs, call us all sorts of names, throw things at us and generally abuse us, it all gets logged and noted because what goes around comes around. And Christmas is the time of goodwill to all men "and women" and what better time than at the end of the year to level the score and start a fresh in January.

Have a happy Christmas.
